PERSISTENCE
Not a superstar athlete in his youth. "I didn't win a race until sixth form. Running is about taking enjoyment from the fact that you can run and, with consistency, over time, you can achieve your best from the sport." (stmalachyscollege.com, 24 May 2016)


BATTLE
Competed at Rio 2016 Olympics, placing 64th in marathon. Suffered serious two-day bout of flu before event but was determined to compete. (sec-ed.co.uk, 14 Sep 2016).


PARK-RUN STAR
Been known to impress in the occasional 5km park run, leading the field home in a swift 15:01 at Long Eaton. One fellow park runner said via social media: "For everyone that was talking about that quick guy at parkrun earlier and wondering who he was, it turns out he’s an Irish international that ran at the Rio Olympics." (nirunning.co.uk, Jun 17 2017).
